Lillian Francis reveals the beautiful cover art of her upcoming book titled LOVERS ENTWINED.
It releases on August 03, 2015.
Ewan Matthews is one of Boston’s leading genealogy experts. When a would-be bridegroom comes looking for confirmation that there are no skeletons in his ancestral closet, Ewan considers turning the job down. Trey Capell is a jerk of the highest order and yet Ewan experiences an infuriating attraction that’s easy to justify. Trey’s exactly his type—a carbon copy of the man Ewan’s been looking for his entire life.
Harder to explain is the sense of recognition that leaves Ewan speechless the moment Trey steps into his office. Or the stomach-churning sensation at the thought of casting the job aside.
Trey gets more appealing by the day, leaving Ewan struggling with forbidden desire for his client. Desire not helped by strange voyeuristic dreams that have started to haunt his sleep. Dreams that appear to be an echo of the past.

“It’s only a casual meeting. With Trey Capell. I doubt if he’ll even show up.” Ewan sighed. He faked a cough to cover the sound as Barbara’s other eyebrow shot up to join the first in an interested question.
Why in hell did I sound disappointed about that?
“Oh.” She studied him curiously, her head still quirked slightly to one side. She seemed to come to a decision and a small smile graced her lips. “So, what did you call me for?”
“Nothing. Just to let you know that you might as well take yourself off home. The Optik-Smythe report can wait another day.”
Ewan stopped at the window, and kneeling on the leather seat, he glanced out at the snow. He spun the chair back around to face Barbara, resting his arms across the headrest. It was a childish act, which made Ewan feel lightheaded. He considered pushing off with his feet and seeing how many rotations he could do before he ran out of steam. But he wouldn’t. Start that sort of behaviour and next thing you know he’d be wearing jeans to the office and what would that do for his respected—crusty—reputation?
Stopping the sigh before it could even form, Ewan smiled at his P.A. “I can’t see a break in the snow and I’d rather you went home before the roads start to freeze. Go and surprise Fred. See if you can get him to make me some gingerbread for tomorrow.”
“Thank you.” Barbara beamed. “But what about Mr Capell?”
“I’ll listen out for him,” Ewan said, to reassure her. He didn’t bother to reiterate that he didn’t think Trey would be coming for fear that the unwarranted feeling of disappointment would show itself in his voice or expression.
“Okay, I’ll see you tomorrow.” She disappeared back through the doorway.
She wasn’t gone for more than two minutes before she reappeared with her bag over her shoulder and a coy smile on her face. Ewan hadn’t wheeled the chair any further into the room, his attention distracted by the fall of snowflakes, which he watched, mesmerized.
“He’s very good-looking, isn’t he?”
Not expecting the interruption, Ewan glanced back at her with a frown born from surprise.
“Mr Capell,” Barbara said, although her explanation was unnecessary. “About your age too.”
“He’s a client. And a self-absorbed idiot.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Lillian Francis. Author of gay romance. Happy Endings guaranteed. Eventually.
An avid reader, Lillian Francis was always determined she wanted to write, but a “proper” job and raising a family distracted her for over a decade. Over the years and thanks to the charms of the internet, Lillian realized she’d been writing at least one of her characters in the wrong gender. Ever since, she’s been happily letting her “boys” run her writing life.
Lillian now divides her time between family, a job and the numerous men in her head all clamouring for their stories to be told.
Lillian lives in an imposing castle on a wind-swept desolate moor or in an elaborate ‘shack’ on the edge of a beach somewhere depending on her mood, with the heroes of her stories either chained up in the dungeon or wandering the shack serving drinks in nothing but skimpy barista aprons.
In reality, she would love to own a camper van and to live by the sea.
